I never planned on posting so much but it seems if you are a talker it reflects in your blogs :).
Sorry to those who get a little over my ranting but I loved the idea which popped into my head.
I earlier made a comment about the benefits of using blogs with students, this is a link to a small extract which also finds this an invaluable idea.
I would never have imagined using them within a classroom, either for learning or assessment, love the way this course is broadening my thinking.
I am planning on working in special education and now I will continue this train of thought with how we could integrate this into their learning.
Children with ASD which I usually work with tend not to talk a lot, but, I know having no face to face contact is beneficial, so they enjoy Facebook and a lot of ICT social networks, the older guys would possibly enjoy this medium. Thinking thinking…..
